Why Study in Qatar?

Life in Qatar

Qatar is a modern state and is among the most rapidly developing countries in the world. While it is embracing the technological advancements of the modern world, Qatar remains determined in retaining deep traditional roots and strong family values.

Although it is a small country and fairly new on the world stage, Qatar has grown to become one of the fastest-growing economies in the recent years.

Qatar will be hosting the FIFA World Cup 2022 and the preparations are in full swing. This has resulted to many expat families moving to Qatar to work on all the projects, stadiums, infrastructure and initiatives surrounding the World Cup. All this expat flow fostered Qatar’s thriving and multicultural scene.

Education in Qatar

The first pillar in Qatar’s 2030 vision is human development. Knowing that education is the base of this pillar, the state of Qatar is putting a lot of efforts and investments to foster and spread education between all its residents and beyond.
Qatar’s Education City underscores the state’s desire to strengthen and increase its position in the GCC, becoming the flagship for education in the region. It offers educational facilities to everyone from kindergarten to research-level scientists. The campus hosts several international recognized universities which offers a multicultural learning environment alongside students from all over the world.

Qatar also hosts a wide range of private international schools focusing on building a world-class education system.

International Community

Doha has established itself as a foreigner-friendly destination and has embraced becoming a diverse, progressive and multicultural society.
Even the young ones are taught to accept people from other cultures and nationalities, enabling a real cultural exchange. This brings out a constructive immersion that leads to open-mindedness and mutual understanding.
Unlike many countries, the language is not a barrier in Qatar. While Arabic is the official language, English is widely used, spoken and understood by most people living in Qatar.

Travel gateway / Ideal Location

Qatar stands out as an air travel hub and has established an international reputation. The country is strategically located within 4 hours of main destinations in Europe, Asia, and Africa which makes it easy to fulfil business and leisure trips.

Environment and climate

Qatar is located in the Arabian Peninsula and although it is quite dry and hot during the summer, you will enjoy pleasant temperatures from October to April. This allows outdoor activities such as watersports activities, dune bashing, social events most days of the year.
